Influencer Dixie D’Amelio has revealed that she has been getting death threats after her old photo of a room with Trump-Pence campaign signs on the wall resurfaced online. 

The 18-year-old, who has more than 23 million TikTok followers, came under fire on Tuesday when a fan tweeted a picture that was shared on her VSCO account in 2017. The image shows someone playing a keyboard in front of a wall that is decorated with an American flag and three Trump-Pence signs. 

‘UMMMMMMM,’ the person wrote, prompting Dixie to deny it was her room. ‘Bruh this isn’t even my house lmaoo,’ she clapped back.

Dixie and her younger sister, Charli, rarely talk politics, and many commenters pointed out that she never denied being a Republican or a Trump supporter in her response. 

‘Girl you posted it for a reason,’ one person tweeted, while another commented: ‘Girl u dad a republican why lie.’ 

The TikTok star’s father, Marc D’Amelio, ran as a Republican for the Connecticut State Senate in 2018 but lost to the incumbent, Democrat Bob Duff. 

Drama: 'UMMMMMMM,' the person wrote, prompting Dixie to deny it was her room. She also responded to another tweet about the photo, insisting, 'Again, this isn't my house!'

In his campaign mission statement, the D’Amelio family patriarch vowed to ‘look past political party’ and ‘stand up to Democrats, Republicans, and the President’ if he didn’t agree with their policies. 

Another Twitter user went on to share the controversial photo, writing: ‘Not Dixie D’Amelio having a picture of an American flag and the Trump/Pence flag on her VSCO.’

‘Again, this isn’t my house!’ Dixie hit back. ‘At 15 years old I didn’t give two s***s about politics. My parents have let my sister and I make her own decisions about what we support and what we don’t. What I support is the spread positivity/happiness and that’s all [sic].’

The screenshot of the exchange was later shared on The TikTok Shaderoom Instagram account, and people continued to question whether or not she is a Trump supporter. 

Dixie eventually set the record straight by releasing a statement on Twitter, revealing she has actually received death threats over the photo.   

‘I am an independent voter and I will always vote for the person and never the party,’ she tweeted. ‘I find it sad that I have received death threats due to inaccurate speculation of my political belief. I have never supported Trump. Period.’ 

The post has been liked more than 77,000 times, and many people agreed that she shouldn’t be receiving death threats no matter what her political affiliation.
